    • Good morning! Pretty good 4th of July weather yesterday! I know a few people to my NW started off with rain, but for the most part, things cleared up nicely and everyone could get outside and enjoy the festivities.  In this water vapor image, you can see the return of the moisture starting today, and by tomorrow we'll be in the soup again.       So for the next 24 hours, hit or miss showers and thunderstorms and then things begin to ramp up. Keep in mind that these precipitation forecast from the WPC are "averages". So when you look at this image and see these small amounts, just understand that if you actually get one of the thunderstorms, you WILL get more rain than what you see on the map. Just sayin'.... 😉    And from Monday on, it goes downhill...   These images are the WPC rainfall forecast and you can see where they think the heaviest rain will fall. Luckily it's only something that the fish need to worry about, but much of the southeast will get a dousing of rain before it's all said and done.   Summer weather is generally boring, sorry, it's hard to make it more interesting. 🙂 Maybe I can stir up a hurricane or something. If you didn't see my time lapse of the fireworks last night, I'll bore you with it here. I took this from the deck using my phone which isn't great at night shots. If you view it on a larger screen you can see all of the fireworks flashes. The camera facing toward Gainesville/Cumming/Milton. After I stopped this video, there was a great fireworks display that appeared to be coming from the Helen area, and that one ended with huge flashes that lit up the entire north Georgia sky! All of this appears further away than it is.   And of course the time lapse from yesterday.   Hope everyone has a great Sunday!              
    • Thank you @RickyD and everyone else! Hope everyone has a great 4th! 84 degrees here right now  
    • Happy 4th group and Steve!!!!!!!!!
    • Good morning and Happy Independence Day! Not a lot of weather to talk about on this 4th of July other than the obligatory afternoon and evening thunderstorms. 🙂 The only rain around the southeast this morning was over north Georgia and it was fading when I grabbed these images. But don't worry, you'll see more of those later today. 🙂       7 day precipitation totals are looking like this today.   When yesterday looked like this.   I expect to see more changes as we move into the week. Otherwise, not a bad 4th of July weekend for weather except for those afternoon and evening thunderstorms and the heat. But hey... it's summertime, what else would you expect? 🙂 I hope everyone has a GREAT and SAFE 4th of July!
